Is assuming the suicide bombers in Iraq today were Al Qaeda valid? What sect of Islam is Al Qaeda? Are they Sunni's, and that's why they've attacked the Shiite's on their holy day? Or are they Shiite's and figure who cares, we'll kill our own just to make the US look bad and what? Get the Shiite's to rise up, that doesn't seem to make sense. I don't see the primarily secular "old guard" of Bathist Sunni's having suicide bomber in their ranks to carry these kinds of attacks, but maybe?
